by Clare Bell

Not yet rated | write a review
Remarkable for their movement and expression, conveyed with only a few well-placed strokes of a pen, the drawings of Al Hirschfeld (b.1903) have beguiled the American public for nearly 80 years. His deft technical mastery and droll wit have earned him wide recognition as one of the top caricaturists of all time.

Coinciding with an exhibition of the artist''s work at the Museum of the City of New York, this delightful, affordable paperback showcases, for the first time, the artist''s irrepressible view of New York life. From 1920s Harlem to the Algonquin Round Table, these cunning scenes -- elucidated by curator Clare Bell''s text and an introduction by New York Times columnist Frank Rich -- form a portrait of the city''s vanished cultural landscape that is as irresistible as it is unique.
